That fact was in evidence again this week following reports that a pro-life activist had his home raided by an FBI SWAT team in the early morning hours over a case that had been dropped by a federal court for lack of evidence.
Heavily armed agents raided the home of Mark Houck, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, scaring his homeschooling wife and their seven children after the Justice Department decided to pick up the case which involved an allegation of an altercation between Mark and a far-left pro-abortion demonstrator who was screaming at one of his children outside a Philly clinic earlier this year.
The court saw no evidence to move forward with the case, while the Biden DOJ saw another opportunity to terrorize conservatives.
“The kids were all just screaming,” Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie, told LifeSiteNews. “It was all just very scary and traumatic.”
The reporter who broke the story, Patrick Delaney, appeared this week on the Real America's Voice network to discuss the incident, telling host Steve Gruber that what occurred was state-sponsored "terrorism," using at least 25 heavily armed FBI agents.
Delaney also noted what he called the “two-tier justice system” which "allows pro-abortion violence” to run rampant “around the country targeting pro-life centers and churches with vandalism and fire bombings,” while “there has not been one arrest from the FBI.”
Ryan-Marie told the outlet that the SWAT team rolled up on the property with around 15 vehicles at about 7:00 in the morning, surrounding the house quickly with rifles in the ready position before “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”
She said that before opening the door, Mark attempted to calm the agents down, saying, “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming.”
When her husband did open the door, she explained further, agents “had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house.”
The agents announced that they were on the property to arrest Mark, which led Ryan-Marie to ask agents to produce a warrant. One replied “that they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not,” she said.
When she protested that, noting it is akin to kidnapping, saying, “you can’t just come to a person’s house and kidnap them at gunpoint,” agents finally retrieved the warrant from one of their vehicles.
“After they had taken Mark, and the kids were all screaming that he was their best friend, the [FBI agents on her porch] kind of softened a bit. I think they realized what was happening. Or maybe they actually looked at the warrant,” Ryan-Marie told LifeSiteNews. “They looked pretty ashamed at what had just happened.”
As a result, the mother said her kids were “really sad and stressed. So, I’ve already reached out to some psychiatrists or psychologists to try and help us through this. I don’t really know what’s going to come of it when you see guns pointed at your dad and your mom in your house when you first wake up in the morning.”
The raid came as whistleblower and Special Agent Kyle Seraphin told talk host and podcaster Dan Bongino that the FBI has become a shell of itself and is now officially less of a federal law enforcement agency and more like an intelligence-gathering entity, spying on law-abiding Americans in order to advance a left-leaning political agenda.
He also claimed that hundreds of agents who are exasperated and disgusted with the politicization are nevertheless remaining with the agency so they can grab their pensions and get out.
“The number of guys who say, ‘I don’t agree with what’s going on here, but I’ve got three years to retire,’ it’s heartbreaking,” Seraphin, a former member of the U.S. Air Force who has been with the bureau for more than five years and was suspended without pay in June, said.
